Fruity anyone?

It is generally believed that fruity perfumes smell delicious. It must be a true statement, since they kinda remind of us of our childhood and what`s better than that?

Take for example Ibiza Hippie from Escada. With top notes such as pear, peach, cassia, black currant and litchi, it`s no wonder you would crave for it and who could blame you? Its middle notes are cranberry, freesia and hiacynth and it ends with sandalwood, musk and amber. Plus the bright bottle, which is by now the Escada trademark.

Salvador Dali`s Purple Lips is an oriental floral fragrance. One of the top notes is blueberry and the other is pomegranate. Now, how yummy is that? Then comes the heart of the perfume, a floral combination of lilac, vanilla orchid and violet. The fragrance closes with a woody mixture of musk, sandalwood and amber. The sensual and elegant purple bottle should make you consider purchasing this one.

Cherry by Masaki Matsushima was launched in 2007 in honor of the cherry blossom. It`s a blend of cherry blossom, raspberry, sweet pea, blackcurrant, watermelon, musk, cassia, blueberry and lotus. Lovely packaging, meant to symbolize the romantic breeze of spring.

Magical Moon by Hanae Mori comes in a really cool bottle and I say this since a huge fan of blue color, it is a representation of the moon and its mystery. It`s an oriental floral launched in 2006, created as an “ ode to the white star “. Among the top notes I should mention the pineapple, litchi and guava, carambola and pink pepper, middle notes are rose, orange blossom and osmanthus. It ends with a mixture of coconut milk, incense, sandalwood, sugar cane, red cedar, cotton flower, white musk and also patchouli.

Ed Hardy Hearts & Daggers by Christian Audigier is one of the perfumes from the collection inspired by the famous Ed Hardy and it was launched in November 2009. Blood orange, violet leaf and red apple are its top notes, followed by a heart of apple blossom, jasmine and mango and ending with amber, woodsy notes, benzoin and musk. Vivid packaging.

The title brings to mind breakfast time, right?

Well, that`s actually not what I have in mind for this article, these two are actually notes of the perfumes I will present in the next few lines.

We start with Poison Tendre by Dior, a floral fragrance that unites insolence with charm. Created in 1994, its top notes are Brazilian rosewood, mandarin orange, asafoetida and bergamot, then comes a heart of tuberose, orange blossom, rose, honey and freesia, while the end is composed of sandalwood, heliotrope, vanilla and musk. The nose behind this magical creation is Edouard Flechier.

Soir de Lune by Sisley is a chypre floral fragrance, elegant and intense. It starts with nutmeg, coriander, lemon, bergamot, pepper oil and mandarin orange, followed by peach, lily-of-the-valley, orris, mimose and may rose and ends with a blend of patchouli, honey, oakmoss, musk and sandalwood. The rounded facetted bottle was created by Polish sculptor Bronislaw Krzysztof.

Terra by Paolo Gigli was launched in the autumn of 2009 and is part of a collection of four perfumes , each dedicated to the four main elements of nature, fire, air, water and earth. The bottles are little works of art, each made of the finest Venetian glass, they are colored by hand and are decorated with gems and 24 carat gold. Terra features among its top notes lemon, coconut, strawberry and milk, the heart is a blend of jasmine, lily-of-the-valley, sunflower, orchid and rose, while the base is strongly oriental, with a composition of green amber, vanilla, cedar, sandalwood and white musk.

M`Zelle Vanille Chocolat By Corine de Farme is a delicious oriental vanilla fragrance dedicated to the sweetest notes- tender vanilla and milk chocolate. It is an amazing mixture of milk, toffee and hazelnut, but also vanilla and chocolate at the base. It sounds more like a sweet treat to me.
